‘Voices’ lifted in me­mory

Los Angeles Times - - At The Movies - — Ken­neth Tu­ran

Fans of Yos­sele Rosen­blatt now have a rea­son to re­joice. Film clips of the early 20th cen­tury’s le­gendary ex­em­plar of Jewish can­to­rial mu­sic, not to men­tion other greats like Moishe Oysher and Moshe Kous­se­vitzky, can be found in a warm­hearted doc­u­men­tary called “100 Voices: A Jour­ney Home.” The film tracks a 2009 tour by nearly 100 mod­ern can­tors to Poland, the birthplace of can­to­rial mu­sic, that in­cluded a con­cert at the only War­saw syn­a­gogue to have sur­vived World War II. The tour footage is emo­tional, but to see Rosen­blatt, that is some­thing else. Play­ing at the AMC Cen­tury City 15.
